Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres by Henry Adams( Book )

238 editions published between 1904 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 5,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: Mont Saint Michel and Chartres is a record not of a literal journey but of a meditative journey across time and space into the medieval imagination. Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings
Democracy; an American novel by Henry Adams( Book )

191 editions published between 1880 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 4,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. --Inga at Amazon.com

John Randolph, known as John Randolph of Roanoke, represented Virginia in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and once famously stated, I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality."
